Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) has admitted in an interview with the New Yorker that he is motivated by hatred in his frenzied push to impeach his political rival, President Donald Trump.
“I do hate what he is doing to the country,” Schiff told the fake news reporters, before adding that “the evidence of the President’s misconduct is overwhelming.”
Schiff is angered by the fact that Republicans under the leadership of President Trump will not accept the legitimacy of their impeachment witch hunt.
“The President and his allies are making a comprehensive attack on the very idea of fact and truth,” Schiff wrote in a House Intelligence Committee report. “How can a democracy survive without acceptance of a common set of experiences?”
Schiff also personally attacked Jonathan Turley, a George Washington University professor who was called as a witness by Republicans during a recent impeachment hearing, while talking to the New Yorker.
“What Turley is arguing on behalf of the Administration is you should allow the President’s obstruction to succeed,” Schiff said. “And that’s not a particularly powerful argument when the President continues to solicit foreign interference in our election.”
Schiff even resorted to using profanities during the interview, as he can hardly contain his unhealthy level of disdain for the President.
“The President doesn’t give a shit about what’s good for our country, what’s good for Ukraine. It’s all about what’s in it for him personally and for his reëlection campaign,” he said.
The shifty California Congressman has grown more desperate in recent days, even unmasking the metadata from phone calls made by renowned investigative journalist John Solomon in an apparent attempt to smear him.
“Adam Schiff arbitrarily releases my phone records as a 1st Amendment protected reporter. State Department bureaucrats reportedly monitored my social media. A witness gratuitously drags a 13-year-old boy into impeachment. Whatever happened to civil liberties, privacy and decency?” Solomon wrote in a tweet.
“Any questions about the fact that Members, congressional staff, or journalists appear in call records released by the Committee should be directed at those individuals, who were in contact with individuals of investigative interest to the impeachment inquiry,” said Patrick Boland, a spokesman for Democrats serving on the House Intelligence Committee in defense of Schiff’s reprehensible behavior.
Schiff’s unhinged behavior has made him unfit to be a Congressional leader. The hatred in his heart against the President has caused him to violate the Constitution, and a special counsel investigation into his illicit actions may be in order.
